The media and the Democrats have created a narrative about the Russians rigging the 2016 election.

Now that scandal has engulfed the Obama administration.

And this may be Obama’s worst crime ever.

Many critics have been asking about Obama’s response to the alleged Russian cyber attacks.

What did he know and when did he know it?

It turns out Obama may have been warned years in advance of Russia’s alleged intentions to interfere in the election.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

“The Obama administration received multiple warnings from national security officials between 2014 and 2016 that the Kremlin was ramping up its intelligence operations and building disinformation networks it could use to disrupt the U.S. political system, according to more than half a dozen current and former officials.

As early as 2014, the administration received a report that quoted a well-connected Russian source as saying that the Kremlin was building a disinformation arm that could be used to interfere in Western democracies. The report, according to an official familiar with it, included a quote from the Russian source telling U.S. officials in Moscow, “You have no idea how extensive these networks are in Europe and in the U.S., Russia has penetrated media organizations, lobbying firms, political parties, governments and militaries in all of these places.”

That report was circulated among the National Security Council, intelligence agencies and the State Department via secure email and cable in the spring of 2014 as part of a larger assessment of Russian intentions in Ukraine, the official said.

There was no explicit warning of a threat to U.S. elections, but the official said some diplomats and national security officials in Moscow felt the administration was too quick to dismiss the possibility that the Kremlin incursions could reach the United States.”

But even with this knowledge, the Obama administration did very little to respond.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

“Wanting to counter suspected Russian interference in American politics, these officials said that the Obama administration was aware of Russia’s activities but did not want to retaliate forcefully. As it became clear that Russia was meddling in the 2016 election, officials recommended expelling diplomats or striking back through cyber measures but were denied.

Some outside the White House blamed the National Security Council’s micromanagement, but NSC officials pointed the finger at the State and Defense Departments. Those agencies were reportedly afraid of Russian retaliation.

“The frustrations [about lack of forceful action] are justified and, frankly, were shared by the White House,” a former official told Politico. “The options were being discussed. They weren’t being implemented.”

Obama eventually told Putin in person to “cut it out” and his administration released an October 7th statement accusing Russia of cyber attacks.

But the response raises another question: Was fear of Russian retaliation really the reason for the weak response?

New forensic evidence uncovered by The Nation revealed the emails from the DNC could only have been obtained through an inside job.

It was impossible for a hacker to have downloaded them and the evidence points to someone in the building – and not a Russian – obtaining the emails.

Critics contend the lack of a forceful Obama response is evidence the administration knew the Russia “meddling” allegation was nonsense.

But they went along with it because it was convenient for Hillary Clinton.

It’s another piece of evidence showing the Russia story was fake news concocted by the Democrats to come up with an excuse for their loss and attempt to sabotage Trump’s Presidency.
